Go For It! — The performance of this car is fabulous and it's really fun to drive too! For being a "sports car" the gas mileage is really good. It's a beautiful car with a powerful engine. Under the hood: Volvo's powerful five-cylinder alloy engine w/DOHC variable valve timing for both the intake and exhaust camshafts, the 2.5-liter inline engine generates 300 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque, available at as low as 1,950 rpm. Twin intercoolers ease the load of the engine's turbocharger. The AWD system sends up to 50 percent more torque to the back wheels when needed, including the initial moments of takeoff. Six-speed Geartronic six-speed close-ratio manual gearbox with short-throw shift lever. Also, this car is still under warranty until the end of this year!

Love! — Sick car! Everything is perfect the automatic shift like perfect and its comfort like a v-class. Beautiful interior, and excellent handling! The beautiful sound of the motor when you pass 60-100-120-150 and so on!! I highly recommend it!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Great Car For The Money By kbvolvo

Potential, But Failure. By Joe

This car had so much god damn potential. Front seats are the most comfortable of any car I've ever been in. Shifter feel is great, and MAN do these things go. Only problem is how unreliable the d... Read More

Performance Sedan Best Buy By Bruce
